Some notes about this show

Ahimsa House is a community / activist building in the Brisbane suburb of West End.
http://www.ahimsahouse.com.au/index.html

West End historically has been the radical heart of Brisbane and despite recent gentrification, remains a diverse, multicultural place. It turned out to be the perfect setting for The Evens' powerful and politically charged songs.

Before the 1st song, Ian asks about the 1 hour time difference between Queensland and the other eastern states of Australia. When the audience shouts back various responces, Ian then asks, "so the cows govern Queensland?". Without knowing the history of Queensland, Ian accurately and succinctly summed up the past century of this 'different' state.

The audience loved the show, all accept for one guy who just didn't get it.
After 'Eventually' he started shouting nonsensical questions and heckles at Ian. The guy got it back both barrels. Other than this interruption, it was a great show and this is a really nice recording.

Subject: Thanks for recording this show!
Great to hear this 2005 show, with excellent notes and background on the location. Ian sounds a bit tired and thrown off by the timezones, as indicative of his q&a in the beginning. And of course his openness to open dialogue with the audience is showcased here. Ian's humanness and failure to be just another rockstar is part of what makes his live shows, and him, so great.
